FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Ski Mobiling - absolutely incredible. We shared a ski for four hours and had lunch out. It was lovely seeing all the scenary and going up and down and through the ski resort. You are given a helmit, warm outer clothing and the handles are even heated so you don't get cold. it was nice to share as whilst you are siting on the back you can enjoy all the scenary. dog sledging - beautiful. Take lots of warm layers and something to cover your face! An afternoon goes far to quickly but it was enough to enjoy the experience.
What did you think of your group leader?
Henri our main guide was fantastic. Quick to respond and help when needed, spoke fantastic english, very informative and made the week an enjoyable and fun one. All the other staff were also very polite and helpful.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Take a hairdryer! We also invested in a Buff scarf which was fantastic for covering your head and neck. also invest in a good, well fiting pair of gloves that you cna layer up with the camps gloves or invest in some hand warmers. A god send when you take your hands out to take photos! We took $500 which covered all the extra activities we wanted to do and bought a few soveniers home. Take a camera which batteries are not affected by the cold.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
We were unlucky not to see the Nortern lights but we are still glad we spent the money and had a fantastic trip. :-)
